Appearance: Clear burnt orange, with small head that quickly dissipates.
Aroma: Lots of orange comes through, with some floral accents as well.
Taste: Orange and coriander; I also get some honey up front. Wheat is very prevalent on the back of the tongue. Some spice comes through as well.
Mouthfeel: Slightly carbonated, with a slightly medium body. Crisp and very easy to drink.
Arcadia’s Whitsun Ale is what I’d best describe as a beefed-up Bells’ Oberon. The brew features strong orange flavors, with some coriander, honey and some wheat on the backend. There’s also a bit of a spice to it — making it slightly less balanced than most wheat ales — but still very enjoyable.
The brew pours a clear burnt orange, and has a small head that does not linger. It’s a very easy to drink, medium-bodied ale, with a bit of a crispness coming from the slight carbonation of it.
